Sore index finger!
I apologize if this is an FAQ, but I am new to knitting and knitting continental style thanks to this site! I love knitting and I'm doing it so much that my index finger (where I keep tension in the working yarn) is sore! Is there some sort of thimble equivalent for kitting?

Thank you!

Try these!



"This thimble is very easy to wear! 3/8" diameter suede dots are self-adhesive and impermeable. It's tough, does not slip and is completely reusable. It also it a great help for pulling needles! Not to mention, it does not require short fingernails!"

I recently ordered some of those as my thumbs are seriously cracking and peeling thanks to gardening and knitting and there not being enough hand moisturizer in the world.

Or a spot bandaid helps get you past that tender period. It helped me when my thumb was really raw and I could barely stand air on it.

I have a callous on my left index finger from where the yarn rests, now it's just my right index finger that's sore from a bad habit of pushing on the left needle
